Cooperation Agreement signed by Russia’s Safe Internet League and China’s Cybersecurity Association


A Cooperation Agreement, providing for a Russia-China cybersecurity conference to be held semi-annually, has been signed between the Safe Internet League of Russia and the Cybersecurity Association of China.

The cooperation between the two countries will involve exchanging experience in matters of cybersecurity, preparing joint reports to be presented to the two countries’ leadership, conducting joint research and war-games in the sphere of state information security, countering information warfare included.

The present advancement in Russia-China cooperation in matters of information security comes as the result of the mutual agreements reached by Aide to President of Russia Igor Schegolev and Director of Cyberspace Administration of China and member of the Politburo of the CPC Central Committee Lu Wei at the 2015 World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, where Mr Schegolev was leading the Russian delegation.

«The world is searching for a new model of Internet governance. The Wuzhen Summit aspires to be the platform for delivering such a model, one based on a civilised approach — namely, of Internet governance at the level of the UN and designated international organisations providing and guaranteeing transparency of the whole process, sovereignty of states parties, and inadmissibility of unilateral interference by any single country. This is a matter in which the Russian and Chinese positions are in complete accord,» explained Safe Internet League Chairman of the Board Denis Davydov.
